Biography

Kyshera (pronounced K-eye-she-ra) are a three-piece alternative rock band from South Wales, formed in 2005. The band describes its sound as ‘Konic’, a term they invented as meaning ‘anything that is otherwise indefinable’, however, their musical style can broadly be defined as ‘Progressive Grunge’. Kyshera are known for their sometimes complex and unpredictable music as well as their energetic live show and overtly political lyrics, however, the band also has an equal amount of more accessible material. Kyshera list their influences as including Frank Zappa, Melt Banana, Stravinsky, Pink Floyd, Squarepusher and Soundgarden (a full list can be found on the bands’ ever growing ‘Q&A’ page). The meaning of the bands name is frequently refused an explanation, although they say there is one & Kyshera have a band ‘manifesto’ which promotes a ‘Konic Movement’.

Kyshera officially formed in 2005 but development was slow due to a long series of line-up changes & instability in the band meaning that the 1st commercial release by the band (entitled ‘Paradigm’) didn’t come out until July 2010. Kyshera’s 1st gig was at the legendary TJ’s nightclub in Newport in 2005 & the band then spent its first few years gigging constantly around the UK, taking frequent breaks due to its line-up difficulties. Kyshera’s longest consistent line-up to date included James Kennedy on Guitars & Vocals, Carl Peel on Drums and Joe Cicero on Bass which lasted between 2006 and 2008.
